On October 2nd, 2013, our new Gunnislake team, Michael Alexander (Alex), Michael Kinger and John Wilkinson played their first competitive team game ever!
Unfortunately for them, the 'luck' of the draw saw them playing Milton Abbot A, the team that won the second division in the league last year and who will therefore be playing in the first division this year. And though the overall outcome wasn't good for them, many good games were played and, hopefully, fun was had by all.
Ottilia, Chair and Coach of the Club, was playing for her 'old' team, Milton Abbot A, against Gunnislake. She said, 'I really wanted to be present when Gunnislake played their first match, but I certainly did not want to be their first opponent...'.
Having lost the game, Gunnislake will now be playing Anchorage A (another first division team...) on Wednesday evening, October 9th, at home, in the Consolation Round.
Good luck, Gunnislake!
